OREGON – A NATIONAL LEADER

Oregon has been a leader and economic hub of renewable energy and clean technology innovation, but there is much more work that needs to be done to reassert that leadership.

 

SIGNIFICANT THREAT

Significant threats and risks to Oregon’s economy range from warming temperatures, wildfires, drought, depleting snowpack and ocean acidification. These global and local risks have direct impact on the immediate and long term health of Oregon’s diverse economy including agriculture, fisheries, recreational, financial, energy and natural resource industries.

Facing climate change head-on can put Oregon at the forefront of clean technologies, new service opportunities, and economic competitiveness.
